As we continue to assess the impact and damage from Hurricane Maria, we will be closing the University until the 9th of October. However, we know that there are many concerned students and parents across all of our programs with many questions. While we do not have complete transparency yet into a number of issues, please know that we are working diligently to find solutions and know that our top priority is for the safety and well being of the students and staff.
We are receiving accountability updates daily, and would encourage you to please let us know as soon as you can as to your personal safety status. We are working to account for every student, faculty and staff member at the moment and as to their well being. Secondly, we are also working to resolve operations as quickly as possible and our intent is to have all students complete their course work this term. We are considering a number of options, including the temporary movement of the campus to a safe and established location while repairs are made to the Ponce campus. We will keep everyone informed as these plans develop.
Please continue to reach out with updates on the safety and well being of your fellow students and colleagues and do not hesitate to continue to reach out with additional questions. We will do our best to respond as quickly as possible. This is a catastrophic event that is unprecedented in its reach and damage, and while we are all feeling the devastating impacts of this storm, we are committed and resolute to working together as a University community to rebuild and and resume our academic mission as quickly as possible.
